This digital pack contains a teacher's guide, lesson plan, presentation, instruction sheets, exercise sheets and equipment list. You will need a 3D printer with SD card, PLA Filament, computer, CAD software (free).
This lesson could be tied into the study of: Design & Technology (design process, Computer Aided Design & Manufacturing), Art & Design (sketching and drawing skills).
All of our lessons are designed to be flexible for all ages, so duration and difficulty level can be adjusted to suit your class.
A huge thanks to 2052 for developing this lesson!
Design a simple building cookie cutter and learn basic principles of CAD modelling.
Turn digital 3D CAD models into physical models using 3D printing.
Begin to understand the broader uses of 3D modelling and printing.
Pupils should use Tinkercad to model a structurally sound cookie cutter to be 3D printed.
Pupils should try out and learn the different modelling tools available in the software.
Pupils should consider the applications of CAD software and what else they could use it to design.
